Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“God uses detours to take you to the place you were meant to be.”~TB

Detour

Don’t be dismayed when your plans are altered, or negative experiences change your destination. God uses those moments to place you where you can be of good use. Though we make plans, God will steer us where we ultimately need to be. So when detours arise, rejoice in where God sends you. Know that His plans are infinitely more Devine and accurate than your own.

Destination

Humans a egocentric in that we want what we want, when we want it. Fortunately for us, God knows what we need. A detour may seem inconvenient, but God may be using that moment for you to uplift and encourage a brother or sister in need. Do not forget that we are all part of one body and God will use of to help each other. So when changes arise, you are in the right place, just consult God for the mission. Chances are you’re being called to serve a greater purpose.

Today’s Question

Are you in the right place or is everything an inconvenience?

Proverbs 28

1 The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions.
2 When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.
3A poor person who oppresses the poor is like a pounding rain that destroys the crops.
4 To reject the law is to praise the wicked; to obey the law is to fight them.
5 Evil people don’t understand justice, but those who follow the LORD understand completely.
6 Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and rich.
7 Young people who obey the law are wise; those with wild friends bring shame to their parents.
8 Income from charging high interest rates will end up in the pocket of someone who is kind to the poor.
9 God detests the prayers of a person who ignores the law.
10 Those who lead good people along an evil path will fall into their own trap, but the honest will inherit good things.
11Rich people may think they are wise, but a poor person with discernment can see right through them.
12 When the godly succeed, everyone is glad. When the wicked take charge, people go into hiding.
13 People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.
14 Blessed are those who fear to do wrong, but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble.
15 A wicked ruler is as dangerous to the poor as a roaring lion or an attacking bear.
16 A ruler with no understanding will oppress his people, but one who hates corruption will have a long life.
17A murderer’s tormented conscience will drive him into the grave. Don’t protect him!
18 The blameless will be rescued from harm, but the crooked will be suddenly destroyed.
19 A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.
20The trustworthy person will get a rich reward, but a person who wants quick riches will get into trouble.
21 Showing partiality is never good, yet some will do wrong for a mere piece of bread.
22 Greedy people try to get rich quick but don’t realize they’re headed for poverty.
23 In the end, people appreciate honest criticism far more than flattery.
24Anyone who steals from his father and mother and says, “What’s wrong with that?” is no better than a murderer.
25 Greed causes fighting; trusting the LORD leads to prosperity.
26 Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe.
27 Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed.
28 When the wicked take charge, people go into hiding. When the wicked meet disaster, the godly flourish.

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“Don’t wait for some miraculous sign to do what God has called you to do.”~TB

At First

When God first reveals the Truth, everything seems miraculous and wonderful. Because you are looking at the world with open eyes you see Him in everything and everywhere. You delight in His presence, singing promises of obedience, forever and ever. Of course, it’s easy to be a babe in Christ; you have yet to begin your walk! It’s a good thing that God’s patient is immeasurable as we humans have a tendency of making promises we cannot keep. Trials and tests have a way of making one weary and jaded, which is why you have to rest and renew your spirit through your 1 on 1 time with Christ.

What Happened

Time has a way of dulling the senses and if you’re not careful, that fire you once had for Christ turns into a lukewarm complacency. Over time, you begin to look for some magical occurrence to help push you into your calling. Friends, God is still here and He is still working in your favor. Don’t take for granted what He’s done for you. If you find yourself waiting for some mystical happening, talk to Him and pray for a renewal of your faith. Even better, help your brothers and sisters who are in need. We are all one body, so when we help someone else, we, in turn, are aided in our service. Don’t wait for signs to do what you know to be the right thing.

Today’s Question

What are you waiting for?

Proverbs 23

1 While dining with a ruler, pay attention to what is put before you. 
2 If you are a big eater, put a knife to your throat; 
3 don’t desire all the delicacies, for he might be trying to trick you. 
4 Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich. Be wise enough to know when to quit. 
5 In the blink of an eye wealth disappears, for it will sprout wings and fly away like an eagle. 
6Don’t eat with people who are stingy; don’t desire their delicacies. 
7 They are always thinking about how much it costs. “Eat and drink,” they say, but they don’t mean it. 
8 You will throw up what little you’ve eaten, and your compliments will be wasted. 
9 Don’t waste your breath on fools, for they will despise the wisest advice. 
10 Don’t cheat your neighbor by moving the ancient boundary markers; don’t take the land of defenseless orphans. 
11For their Redeemer is strong; he himself will bring their charges against you.
12 Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge.
13 Don’t fail to discipline your children. The rod of punishment won’t kill them. 
14 Physical discipline may well save them from death. 
15 My child, if your heart is wise, my own heart will rejoice! 
16 Everything in me will celebrate when you speak what is right. 
17 Don’t envy sinners, but always continue to fear the LORD . 
18 You will be rewarded for this; your hope will not be disappointed. 
19 My child, listen and be wise: Keep your heart on the right course. 
20 Do not carouse with drunkards or feast with gluttons, 
21 for they are on their way to poverty, and too much sleep clothes them in rags. 
22 Listen to your father, who gave you life, and don’t despise your mother when she is old. 
23 Get the truth and never sell it; also get wisdom, discipline, and good judgment. 
24 The father of godly children has cause for joy. What a pleasure to have children who are wise.
25 So give your father and mother joy! May she who gave you birth be happy. 
26 O my son, give me your heart. May your eyes take delight in following my ways. 
27 A prostitute is a dangerous trap; a promiscuous woman is as dangerous as falling into a narrow well. 
28 She hides and waits like a robber, eager to make more men unfaithful. 
29 Who has anguish? Who has sorrow? Who is always fighting? Who is always complaining? Who has unnecessary bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes?
30 It is the one who spends long hours in the taverns, trying out new drinks. 
31 Don’t gaze at the wine, seeing how red it is, how it sparkles in the cup, how smoothly it goes down. 
32 For in the end it bites like a poisonous snake; it stings like a viper. 
33 You will see hallucinations, and you will say crazy things. 
34 You will stagger like a sailor tossed at sea, clinging to a swaying mast. 
35 And you will say, “They hit me, but I didn’t feel it. I didn’t even know it when they beat me up. When will I wake up so I can look for another drink?”
